DC Water Assistance


DC Water is providing emergency relief to District residents struggling with unpaid water bills during the coronavirus (COVID-19) public health emergency and 105 days thereafter.

DC Water residential customers can apply to the DC Department of Energy and Environment for help from the fund established for the Clean Rivers Impervious Area Charge (CRIAC) to help pay all or part of an outstanding water-bill balance and for ongoing monthly CRIAC discounts.
